engagement approach. i think conservatives get amnesia here when they forget that dick cheney wanted to put him on the terrorist list and insisted he stay there. that ronald reagan resisted. he said on the one hand that else in. mandela should be released, but he depended on a white supremacist government to reform itself from within. >> and the issue, mar where? >> when will you ever get tired of beating up on darth vader, who said nelson mandela is a good man. as we saw in the earlier segment, it was a complicated situation. the anc was a terrorist organization at one point. he has since said great things about nelson mandela. i like that what's been said about nelson mandela is said in the same way the pope said what he did. forgiveness and redemption. the pope's widely misinterpreted. and mischaracterized statements. it's active engagement. taking care of each other with solidarity and subsidiary. >> when you say about accusing darth vader, so to speak. this is not just about rhetoric. this is the policy that prevented the anc -- when they had the feet on the neck of nelson mandela

not just be the flu. that's the key one. >> right. >>> former vice president dick cheney is speaking out about the growing feud between his daughters. liz cheney, candidate in wyoming, made comments indicating she supports what she calls the traditional definition of marriage. that drew condemnation from cheney's sister mary and her wife, who responded on facebook. the former vice president said he was caught offguard. >> we were surprised when there was an attack launched against liz on facebook. wished it hadn't happened. do believe we've lived with the situation and dealt with it for many years. it's always been dealt with within the context of the family, and frankly that's our preferences. >> cheney is featured at a $10,000 per couple fund-raiser for his daughter in washington and that is happening tomorrow night. >>> the nation's capitol is brighter for the rest of the year after getting an annual touch of holiday glitz. house speaker john boehner flipped the switch on the capitol christmas tree. the 88 foot tall spruce adorned with ornaments made from kids across the country.
